Meanwhile the 161 km strong suburban rail network will have 81 stations, spaced at an average of 1.8 km from each other in four corridors.

Meanwhile in a related announcement, the state government also tweaked the proposed metro expansion plan to the Kempegowda International Airport. With this, the airport line from Nagawara will pass through Hebbal and Jakkur costing another Rs 5,000 crore. Previously the route was proposed through Ramakrishna Hegde Nagar.
